A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a sewing machine.

Claudia Patricia's story

Claudia Patricia is 31 years old and has an eight-year-old son. She works as a seamstress, thanks to a friend who told her about this activity. She took sewing classes at SENA and has worked in sewing companies, where she acquired more experience in making all types of clothing, costumes, and making repairs.

She would like to invest this loan in the purchase of a sewing machine to sew all types of stitches. This will allow her to make a much more polished garment and offer a better quality to her clients. She can then raise her income and improve her young son's quality of life.

Her greatest dream is to expand her sewing workshop, therefore generating more employment opportunities.
